Areola Pain

I am 28 years old and I delivered my 2nd child 6 months ago, but did not breastfeed. Recently, I have developed pain in my areola and nipple area in my right breast. It only hurts if  pressure is put on it or if I move about quickly. There are no lumps that I can tell and the areola area looks slightly redder and perhaps a little more swollen than my left breast. I am currently taking Yaz birth control. I can't find much info on this. Is this something that I should get checked out?

Hi,

The pain could be due to the clogged milk ducts. do you notice any nipple discharge etc? Do you remember any injury or trauma to the site?

It would be best to get a proper clinical examination done by your doctor and rule out any causes of breast pain.

Let us know how you are doing and also what your doctor advises.

Keep us posted if you have any doubts.

Hope this helps.

Regards.
